FIFA Confederations Cup 

Result: Mexico 2-1 New Zealand 

Date: 21 June 2017

Venue: Fisht Olympic Stadium

Mexico claimed their first win at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, after coming from behind to secure a 2-1 victory over New Zealand on Wednesday evening.

The All Whites nearly went ahead after 11 minutes but Diego Reyes produced a timely clearance to deny a certain goal.

New Zealand were then presented with another chance to take the lead in the 27th minute through Ben Woods, however Mexico's Alfredo Talavera produced a fine save to deny the striker.

Mexico were then dealt a blow after 33 minutes when  Carlos Salcedo was forced off with an injury. He was replaced by Hector Moreno.

New Zealand eventually broke the deadlock just before the halftime break as Clayton Lewis played in Wood, who calmly slotted past Talavera.

The Mexicans came out firing in the second half and should have leveled matters in the 49th minute but Giovani Dos Santos blazed over from close range.

The scores were level in the 54th minute as Raul Jimenez turned well before firing into the top corner from the edge of the box.

Mexico continued to threaten and they took the lead in the 72nd minute as Aquino raced to the byline before picking out Oribe Peralta, who fired a first-time effort at the near post.

New Zealand went agonisingly close to leveling matters in the 84th minute when Ryan Thomas rattled the upright with a curling effort from the edge of the box.

Mexico had the chance to seal the win in the 88th minute but Tommy Smith popped up with a fine block to clear Jimenez's effort off the line.

Nevertheless, the Mexicans held on for the win and now move level on points with Portugal.
